Thick and Thin Lace scarf

I was contacted by a woman at church and asked if I could make a knit scarf. She will be playing the part of a professional knitter. (I wonder if that makes me a professional knitter). I was flattered of course and immediately started looking at my options. I gave her some choices of pattern and yarn I had on hand. I love her choice. The pattern came out beautifully in the yarn she chose. I probably wouldn’t have chosen this yarn, but I really like the result. I even managed to knit the scarf longer than I typically do. I always seem to want to bind off sooner than I should but this time I stuck with it. This project really kept me excited about my knitting. I think I might not ever quit the knitting; it has stuck with me through thick and thin.

Baby Blanket Bliss

I couldn’t resist.  I started yet another project.  I had to….it was calling me.  It has been too long since I have knitted a baby blanket and this yarn and this lace pattern are working out beautifully.  Please bear with me, as the photo does not do justice to what I am sure the finished product will look like.  Maybe I am just a little over confident, probably from the knitting-high of starting a new project, not just any project, but a lace one.   I am sure once it is blocked it will be gorgeous, of course, I will probably have no time to post a picture of the perfect masterpiece.  (convenient, don’t you think?)  I will give a taste of my new lace baby blanket.  I am sure I will finish this one soon, unlike the 1/3 done baby blanket it my knitting basket.  Well, now that I’ve given my fingers a stretch typing, it’s time to get back to my knitting.
